Never made your own pickles , but always wondered if you could? I’m delighted to supply an easy but utterly reliable recipe! You may have to  purchases a few of the special ingredients, but once you discover how good these are, you’ll be making them often and maybe even for holiday gifts.

In a large glass or plastic bowel, combine cucumbers, onion, garlic, and pickling salt. Evenly arrange ice cups over top. Cover with a clean cloth and let set at room temperature for 3 hours. Remove garlic. Place mixture in a large colander and rinse and drain well. In a large saucepan , Combine SPLENDA , turmeric, celery seed, mustard seeds, and vinegar. Add drained cucumber mixture. Mix well to combine. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Carefully ladle hot mixture into hot sterilized pint jars, leaving ½ - inch headspace.
